British actor, Daniel Craig has confirmed he is coming back as James Bond.
The 49-year-old actor made the revelation when he appeared on Tuesday night’s “Late Show,” hosted by Stephen Colbert.
He is expected to play the secret agent again in the upcoming 25th Bond film. It was announced in July that a new James Bond film would hit theaters in 2019.
This will be the fifth time that Craig has played Bond. He made his debut in 2006’s “Casino Royale”.
We could use some good news here. Daniel Craig, will you return as James Bond?,” Colbert said.
“Yes,” Craig responded with a smile.
“I always wanted to, but I needed a break,” Craig said.
“There’s no point in making excuses about it. It was two days after I finished shooting the last movie, instead of saying something with style and grace, I gave a really stupid answer.”
